I have resigned myself that I cannot get back into my 'groove' until my Uncle has moved into his own house. Today I did announce Salmon will be the protein, hopefully they won't pull a last minute change. I have squash from the farmers market, and we will make rice.
I have done two shopping trips (with a list and coupons) mainly for my daughter who came home for a visit and a list of needs/wants. So, I will fill you in on her new situation here.
She went up North, had several interviews, got a roommate and moved to NH all on her own! Got a job in VT! While we were on one of our 4 day jaunts. It had been discussed, but we didn't think anything would really happen so quickly. And she is flourishing!
All this happened because a longtime relationship ended suddenly, and it threw her (and us) into a bit of a tailspin. But she certainly has picked herself up and moved on with her life, and I am so very proud of her.
We haven't given her any financial help expect for these Mom can you make me, or Mom can you pick up a (colander, tongs). I enjoy cooking, so making sure she has a cooler full of healthy food options makes me feel better. She is still learning to cook, and trying to save money to get her own place.
So, I have made my chicken/eggplant concoction for her to take. A quiche. Chicken Breast meatloaf. I have hummus and cheese sticks for her to take home. Several different coldcuts and cheeses for sandwiches. I will have fresh produce for her to take, as well as some frozen vegetable steam bags. I will cook swiss chard before she leaves, and pierogies too.
